The problem is, it isn't our place to be prohibiting this. This is a 
policy decision user's of Cocoon need to make. You can be sure that in 
my organization I would have a policy that prohibits enabling this 
feature, but I am also sure that there are plenty of folks who don't 
share the same view and consider the ability to invoke aribitrary stuff 
from a template a necessity.  In that sense it has to be configurable, 
because I want to absolutely be sure the feature cannot be used and not 
rely on folks voluntarily complying.
